A multi-functional bench can be used to watch the world go by or be converted to extra guest seating when entertaining. Layering cozy textures with pillows, rugs, and throws can make a bench just as cozy as your favorite sofa! Keep a couple of books nearby and it might become your new favorite reading nook.
Do you feel like you never have enough storage? Many people never think about using their home entry for storage pieces, but it’s a perfect location! What better place to store keys, glasses, coats, bags and cold weather gear than beside the door. Things you need will be right at hand and there will be no need for the frantic key and purse search when heading out in the morning!
Industrial doesn't have to be cold and unwelcoming. Using natural wood tones, soft textures, and pops of colors in accessories and plants can quickly warm up an industrial space. Providing pegs or hooks and baskets makes it easy to store items that you will need when it’s time to face the world outside again, but keeps them out of sight when not needed.
Use the same metals in the furniture and chandelier as well as the decorative accessories. Use similar wood tones throughout the industrial space as well. This helps create a dining room that feels well thought out and cohesive.
When you have two focal points, try to take advantage by drawing the eye to both using artwork or a mirror over the fireplace and fun accessoires on the mantel. The windows can be accessorized with drapery allowing for the view to be the point of interest. This allows the eye to move seamlessly throughout the space.
This dining room is a great entertaining space for family and friends, offering great texture and dimension throughout. A geometric rug and sleek dining chairs effortlessly tie into the industrial style. A few plants placed throughout bring a splash of green to the palette.
It's not impossible for an Industrial space to feel cozy. Add an upholstered chair that wraps around you and a patterned area rug to help warm up the space. A large plant in the corner brings your eye up and adds height to the dining room.
Using a patterned area rug anchors the dining room with geometric interest and texture. A wall mirror hangs above the fireplace with a sleek frame and stylish grid detail. Accessories bring personality to the industrial dining room.
If your space doesn't have a specific focal point, you can create one using an architectural light fixture to draw the eye and accentuate your industrial style. Curtains frame the windows with texture, bringing softness to the space. A piece of abstract art is the perfect addition above the fireplace.
A nice transition from the world outside to your safe haven should include a comfy seat whenever possible. A bench provides somewhere to take off your boots, shake off the cold, and mentally switch from “on the go” to “home at last”. Include some favorite keepsakes and cozy cushions so that your guests will feel at home as well!
A narrow bookcase can solve multiple problems! It is a great way to fill out a space, and it can provide much needed storage. When used in an entryway, it could also provide a place to keep keys, sunglasses, and gloves so that there is no need to search when headed out. If used near a window, a narrow shelf also serves as a great place for your plants to “catch some rays”!
